The network of Experienced Professionals in Zygomatic Implants

Locally exclusive and with international coverage, the ZAGA Centers represent a group of experienced professionals in zygomatic implants. They are globally recognized experts in treating severe bone loss using zygomatic implants and the ZAGA philosophy. On top of that, brilliant teams accompany them in their pursuit of providing patients with solutions to their dental problems.

The ZAGA Concept aims at adapting the treatment plan to each patient. Therefore, the experienced professionals in zygomatic implants aim at understanding the patient complaint before designing a treatment plan. Consequently, the treatment with a ZAGA Professional is personalized and minimally invasive, from diagnostic to surgical procedure and long-term follow-up. This includes a surgical technique adapted to the patient’s anatomy and focused on preventing short and long-term complications. This vision is the ZAGA Concept: Zygoma Anatomy-Guided Approach. Finally, improvements in surgical and treatment protocols are a result of the ZAGA Centers network activity.

Experienced Professionals

Above all, the ZAGA Professionals are knowledgeable in advanced dentistry. They participate in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Furthermore, research and development initiatives are part of their activity. A collaborative mindset gathers the professionals into thinking sessions and treatment plans discussions. Additionally, the network members also act as educators in zygomatic implants, run international courses, and mentorship sessions. They are key opinion leaders and multidisciplinary. However, when it comes to helping a patient, their full attention is available to find the best possible solution to each case.

Further, the selection and certification of the ZAGA Centers use strict admission criteria. Therefore, the network counts with the best-trained clinicians using a collaborative mindset to progress and provide the best treatment for each patient. Finally, each ZAGA Center is the exclusive expert locally. Altogether, there are few experienced professionals in zygomatic implants. The ZAGA Professionals are part of them and support other less experienced clinicians with case referrals and support with complications.
